This is unlike me isn't it, two posts in one day? I am beginning to wonder if I am feeling okay.....lol.
This is just a very quick post to show you my storage solution for my Spellbinder and other dies.
I like to keep my dies on a piece of magnetic sheet in a plastic cd wallet so they are easy to find and easy to store.
At the back you can see that I am also able to store my masks and all my long Sizzix dies in here too. (Plus I have a few pads that I made using my Bind-it-All machine and old scraps of paper.)
Each of the wallets has a description card included that shows the die number and manufacturers name for that die set. Each card is cut so that they index, which makes searching through them alot easier. I originally started out with colour codes, for example the blue tabs were for foliage & flower dies etc, silver tabs were for all the Labels die sets and the red tabs were for all the fancy shapes and tags. Then unfortunately I ran out of some colours and so I had to use any colours I had left with any new sets I bought.
Each wallet has the dies on a magnetic sheet, the tab card and also a precut of all the dies in that set. This allows me to play around with the shapes and design layouts before I begin the actual project diecutting and then, ultimately, I make less mistakes. This also allows me to come up with different ways of mixing and matching the dies, creating some new and fancy shapes in the process.
For me this has been the best way to store all my dies as it is cheap, easy and space saving. When I had less dies I used the smaller of the two boxes and then moved them over when it got too full. (Sorry about this picture it is an old one of my die box, before I had the light tent and better camera.)
Well that's it folks. I hope that this is of help to someone looking for a way to store their dies.
Take care. I'll see you tomorrow with another card, thanks for stopping by.
